GENEVA--March 5, 2013: TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. is revealing a new seat belt concept in collaboration with Rinspeed at the Geneva Motor Show, which opened today.

Instead of a seat belt buckle and tongue, the technology features a 'webbing catcher' which enables semi-automatic buckling and unbuckling. The system is being introduced on the microMAX commuter vehicle concept designed to travel short distances in urban environments. It features unconventional upright seats.

Swen Schaub, senior manager, Engineering Strategy and Communication said: "Our new seat belt concept is another example of how TRW continues to develop innovative technology and enhance the safety of passengers beyond conventional passenger and commercial vehicles."

"The concept is based on proven seat belt restraint functionality. The semi-automatic buckling offers convenience and ease of entering and exiting for new and conventional vehicle concepts -- helping to increase belt usage rates over short distances."
